Local County Schools Receive Temperature Screening Devices
Rockingham County Schools and Caswell County Schools will now benefit from quick and efficient touchless temperature screening.
Yanceyville, NC – Compassion Health Care, Inc. (CHC) has identified a more streamlined approach to temperature screening for patients and visitors to our facilities using the Xenon Fever Defense temperature scanning kiosks.
Realizing the importance of our community’s health, and how critical these screenings are in the context of facilities with a lot of traffic, CHC has partnered with Rockingham County Schools and Caswell County Schools to ensure that each school is equipped with kiosks.
“Caswell County Schools appreciates the partnership with Compassion Health Care in providing the school system with thermal imaging cameras. The non-contact scanners will be used as part of the system’s daily health screening and temperature check process. The leadership provided by Compassion Health Care puts the health and safety of the community at the forefront.” – Andrew Tyrrell, Assistant Superintendent, Caswell County Schools
When the time comes for students and faculty to return to school, the kiosks will allow for a very quick and efficient touchless temperature screening option that will facilitate safe entry.
“We are so thankful for Compassion Health Care for the new temperature screening devices. In RCS, we have worked hard to be innovative and put our student’s and staff’s safety first and Compassion Health Care has helped us do this! This partnership and these temperature screening devices will help our schools and district so very much as we enter and complete our health screenings every day. Compassion Health Care truly cares about our students and educators and we are so thankful for their support and tireless efforts to support the safety of our students and staff!” – Stephanie Lowe Ellis, Ed.D., NCSP, Executive Director of Behavioral Health, Crisis Intervention, and Student Safety, Rockingham County Schools
To ensure that safety guidelines put forth by the CDC are being met, these temperature reading devices can be used while a person is wearing a mask.
“The pandemic has reshaped much about the world we live in, including the need to think ‘outside the box’ when it comes to opportunities for partnership between health care and the community. The opportunity to do what we can to protect our community as best we can is directly in line with our organization’s mission, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to provide these units to our local schools.” – William Crumpton, Chief Executive Officer, Compassion Health Care, Inc.
